The Meaning of Home

Home is a lot of different things for different people. For someone, it could be their backyard, and for another it could be their best friend’s house. For me, it’s a safe, friendly place. Somewhere where I feel comfortable.

A safe place is one where I feel appreciated. Where I can tell people anything and feel comfortable. That’s where my friends and family are. A friendly place is my family and friends. It is a place where I feel comfortable and happy, and I can feel welcomed by my friends and family.

Everyone deserves a home. But some people simply don’t have one. Some people struggle to keep their homes. They often cannot afford to buy or have to choose other things. I think everyone deserves a home, someone’s wealth or power shouldn’t decide if they have a roof over their heads or not.

A house is a physical structure, something you can touch. Home is where you feel safe. In a house, you are free to do whatever you want. You are free. A home is all you want, it’s where you want to be.

Home is a place where you can be free. While a house feels like you’re on a leash. A house has no limits, nor negativity. It’s where you can play happily. Home is a place where you feel free, a place where you are always pleased.
